New Listeria Recall in Canada
The CFIA announced the recall of 16 types of Hygaard brand sandwiches that could be contaminated with the bacteria, though no illnesses have been reported.
CFIA spokesman Garfield Balsom says Alberta-based Hygaard Fine Foods notified the agency on Wednesday that environmental testing had detected Listeria.
The company issued the voluntary recall of the products, which have best-before dates ranging from Oct. 24 up to and including Nov. 16.
These recalled products were distributed all over Canada (except for PEI and NB) in retail outlets and vending machines. Symptoms of listeriosis include fever, headache, nausea, neck stiffness, and can cause death among people with weak immune systems.
